3D models prove useful in neurosurgical planning 3D models, made by combining a patient’s CT scans and 3D printing technology are proving useful in neurosurgical planning. 3D printing technology is a affordable and fast method to build 3D models for neurosurgical planning. Radiologists have the ability to transform ultra high-quality CT patient pictures into 3D solid versions utilizing a 3D color printer generally used in architecture, construction and engineering. An edge of 3-D models is that they identify defects that 2-D images usually do not, which assists radiologists watch a clearer impression of the picture.
